    I attended the burial ceremony of a woman today. This is a woman I did not know (she is the sister to my boss) but at the church service, I cried! I read some of the tributes written about her and broke down in tears when I saw the casket carrying her body.

    I cried because she was too remarkable a woman to have left this world at just about 54years. She was remarkable because everyone talked about her love for God and her caring for other people. She had lost her husband about some 10years ago and was left to raise 3children by herself. Even her kids talked about how in the face of trials, she would still be singing hymns and praising God. Her colleagues talked about the professionalism and can-do spirit that she lent to the organization and what they achieved with her being on their team.

    Her pastor talked about how she helped many people get their papers in Canada and how she would organize surprise birthday parties, meet people’s needs and just be there for others. People drew strength from her presence, they drew encouragement from her words. He talked about her love for God and a profound statement she made that “eternity does not start in heaven, it starts here on earth”. It starts with the help you give to someone, the life you help change for Christ and the love of God that you show.

    She was remarkable because she was connected to a higher source of power – GOD. She accomplished a lot with the time she spent on earth and if I am God, she is the type of person I would say, “Welldone, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of thy master”

    With all the challenges women face, there is no way to handle them without the help of God. That means, a connection to Him and a constant drawing of strength from His word and time spent in prayer. I struggle with praying especially when things are on the downward slope but that is the time I know I need God most; so I listen to messages to draw encouragement.

    Prayer helps and it is not for God’s sake alone (even God loves to hear us jist with Him) but it is more for our sake. It is what keeps me sane in the midst of negative circumstances, I ask for grace to pray more and that at the end of my time, people will say remarkable things about me and God will say to me, “Welldone, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of thy master.”

    Woman, take courage; God hears your prayers.
